Fundraising for the Samaritans: round 2

Help raise money to keep the Samaritans able to support people at times of distress


This is a community mission, a community led session where you will meet other GoodGym members at the task. Please make yourself known to anyone in a GoodGym top when you arrive. As with all GoodGym sessions we encourage you to use the power of your legs to get there, i.e. run or walk if you can.

Kingston Samaritans have asked for our help again this year with their Waterstones fundraising collections.

There are lots of 1hr shifts throughout the day, with 3-4 max per shift (but including at least one Samaritan, so 2-3 GGers).

Please sign up on the doodle poll to say which shift you can do - and please write your name and GoodGym so that the coordinator can make sure there’s definitely a Samaritan on each shift:

Date and time

9:30am - 6:30pm Saturday, 21st of December 2019

As you will make your own way to the task, feel free to walk or run as you wish.

Ideal for beginners

New to GoodGym?

This is a GoodGym group run, where we run to help a local community organisation and then run back.

New runners are welcome to GoodGym group runs - no one gets left behind. You're unlikely to be alone, hundreds of new people sign up every week.

There's a place to leave bags and a toilet at the start point, all you need to do is bring your trainers. It's free to try - get involved!
